Shake in steering wheel

I THINK I may have a bad tire, but wanted to get opinions.


I did the following upgrades all at once and the shake began. The ride itself is smooth. Bilstein 5100s highest setting w/CB shim. Toytec 1.5" shackles. Fuel beast 18x9 +1 offset. Falken wildpeak at3w 305/65/r18.

I assumed this was a balancing issue from the start. I used a very reputable off-road shop to install everything. They road force balanced the tires. I took it back to have them checked because of the steering wheel shake. They checked all, rebalanced one, and rotated the tires. That fixed the issue. Last oil change I rotated the tires and now it's back.

Is this most likely a bad tire ? I'm taking it back, but can't get in until January. Thought about trying another shop just to rule out poor work being the issue. But like I said this place is THE place to go where I live.

Is notorious for Toyotas in general.

The one thing you mentioned as they didn't do a balance at the last tire rotation which is huge. Tires wear and you're changing the position of which there further wearing by doing a tire rotation. You need to have the wheels tires balanced during rotations as well because what worked 6 months ago is not going to work today.

Just make sure they do a dynamic Road force balance and you'll be good to go.

Another possibility is that the wheels were not mounted properly by the shop that did the rotation. If they just threw them on and tightened them with an impact that can cause problems because the Tundra wheels are hub centric.
The lug nuts need to be tightened to snug then torqued to 90 ft/lb with a torque wrench in a star pattern. Try loosening all five lug nut the re-tighten them properly.

On the balance. It was only a few thousand miles. It was pretty early for a rotation. I just did it because I had the oil changed to get on track.

I'll try that on my next day off. I've only had this tundra since January. But I've been in one since 2009 and have never had this issue. I know for a fact the they hand tightened this rotation, but I'm not for sure if they torqued it. Thanks

I rotate and rebalance every 2500 or so. Rebalancing is key, regardless of miles.

I quit putting the stick-on weights that came when I ordered them. Put the old school hammer on weights, no more problems.
